Blog Tour ~ Dress Blues by Lisa Carlisle


Blog Tour: 
Dress Blues, 
A Second Chance Military Romance 
by 
Lisa Carlisle 

Apr 17th - Apr 24th







Is it ever too late for a second chance at love? 

Volunteering at a cat shelter is much calmer than the adrenaline-fueled skirmishes of Vivi Parker’s last deployment in the Marines, but her limp is a constant reminder of what she endured. The shelter is her sanctuary, her one relief from memories that haunt her. At a fundraiser, she runs into a man she could never have while she served, but had never forgotten. 

Active duty had its challenges, but starting over as a civilian in Boston is more difficult than Jack Conroy anticipated. When his mom and sister drag him to a cat benefit, he never expects to see a woman he last saw in Dress Blues—a woman he couldn’t have, but could never forget. 

Vivi fears she’s no longer the woman Jack was drawn to, able to tackle rock climbing walls or other outdoor challenges. And Jack has decisions he must face. 

Military rules forbade their burgeoning passion. But now, years later, the rules have changed. 

Yet, so have they. 













Review:
Starting over means a second chance…
Starting over is a big challenge and Vivi and Jack are living it. Unexpectedly reunited, never expecting to meet again after their military stint saw them going their separate ways, there were no rules to keep them apart now. Just memories and a new reality that both were finding hard to navigate…
From the first page I threw myself wholeheartedly into this emotional and funny romance. I’m a sucker for second chances and Vivi and Jack had me quickly in their corner. They played by the rules (almost) but here they were, years later, both still searching. For love, for acceptance, for a place in the world that felt right. With self-doubt and lack of confidence as debilitating as any physical injury, they were going to laugh and love their way through some serious challenges…
“Ah, we avoided a cat-astrophy.”
A forbidden romance is now a hopeful beginning if they can navigate the new threats to their relationship. Lots to enjoy amidst cute cats, even more puns and a whole lot of smoldering attraction.  
I knew this was a novella so expected short but was very disappointed when it ended at seventy five percent. The story was complete but I didn’t want it to be over!
